Stunning Garden of the Gods Park scenery, blue skies and the glory of Pikes Peak-America’s Mountain have attracted visitors to Colorado Springs for more than a century.
Manitou Cliff Dwellings has been added to your itinerary. Appreciate the collections at Penrose Heritage Museum and Miramont Castle Museum. Get outdoors at Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center and Bear Creek Nature Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument (in Florissant), Old Homestead House Museum (in Cripple Creek) and Mueller State Park (in Divide). There's still lots to do: hike along Palmer Park, enjoy some music at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, look for gifts at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and see the interesting displays at Michael Garman Museum & Gallery.
